Now you can protect your home and family from burglaries and other crimes by installing a video surveillance system. Not only does it keep criminals at bay, but also stores recorded evidence of all activities. So, even if a criminal manages to get into the house, he can be sentenced and prosecuted with the aid of the recordings. Recently, NICE Systems Limited, the worldwide leader of intent-based solutions, has announced the launch of a next-generation, open-platform, enterprise-class, IP video surveillance solution, NiceVision Net 2.0, at the 2010 ASIS International 56th Annual Seminar in Dallas. This has a three-tiered design which can meet the needs of a broad range of security operations.
Installing a video surveillance system is not a very difficult job. It can be installed both inside and outside a house. In order to have full coverage on the property, it is better to install multiple cameras. The cameras are generally of various types depending on the purpose of usage. Some of the types of surveillance systems are-
1. USB DVRs: These types of cameras can be mounted anywhere at the front door, backdoor, and such other places. The cameras are capable of day and night recordings.
2. IP Cameras: These cameras also can be used both indoors and outdoors. As they connect directly to the computer, there is no need for DVRs.
3. Complete Devices: These are wireless systems that include a DVR and a monitor along with the cameras. These are foolproof security devices. These come with remote viewing capability.
The best part of installing a video surveillance system is that, any unwanted movement in your home will be detected by the security company. Many security companies also let you access the camera footage from your computers or cell phones. With this device you can have complete control over the goings-on at your place. The system gives you a pair of omniscient eyes to keep track of activities in and around your home.
